#158271 - 04/07/06 02:31 PM Kummerspeck
From the Last Page column in the March 2006 Smithsonian magazine, we see a much-needed loan word from German:
Kummerspeck - the excess weight one gains from emotion-related overeating. It means "grief bacon."
My own translation would be more along the lines of "boredom cookie", but its all the same in the end (well, OK; hips).
